Call it karma, but Focus on the Family is now in big trouble. At the group's peak, it had nearly 1,500 employees. This week, they announced another round of layoffs for the Lord - shedding 202 jobs, an estimated 20 percent of its workforce. This brings the new total to around 950 workers, according to the Colorado Independent.
The move to can the workers comes after the group pissed away $800,000 on Proposition 8 to ban same-sex marriage in California. One wonders if Focus on the Family will cut staff from its failed "ex-gay" Love Won Out road show? This extravagant traveling circus must cost a lot of money and it doesn't work.
The fact is, if this organization would butt out of gay relationships, it might be able to actually help heterosexual families. If it would stop its "ex-gay" propaganda - which helps no one and destroys lives - it would not have to downsize.
I think donors to this organization should focus on the money flushed down the toilet to uphold bigotry and discrimination at the expense of families.
Hey, what goes round, comes round. Karma is biting Dobson and his buddies in the ass big time.
I'm all for the removal of their tax-exempt status myself. You wanna preach hate, then don't expect to do it on the American people's dime.

I don't know why you guys are wasting your time going on about removing tax-exempt status from organizations like FOTF, as offensive as they are. It isn't going to happen, EVER. Support for such a move is non-existent in Congress and you're all wasting good energy on this baloney. Like it or not, tax-exempt organizations may not endorse a presidential candidate, but they may indeed "preach hate" and even support whatever constitutional amendments they want to, and it's all legal and within the framework of their status as non-profit organizations.
